Fall, Leaves, Fall
Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
Two of my pieces are due to be played in December, both in the USA. The first is for sax and harp. It's called SWARM, and The Admiral Launch Duo will be playing it at Bezanson Recital Hall in Amherst, Massachusetts. I have shared the event on Facebook.
The other piece is a setting of a winter poem by Emily Brontë, Fall, Leaves, Fall. It is for for two singers, viola and piano, and Contemporary Columbus will perform it at 7pm on Sunday, 17 December at Wild Goose Creative in Columbus, Ohio. This is the inaugural concert of Contemporary Columbus. Brontë's poem is given below.
